Hap and Leonard in a deadly Jarabe in Mexico
It is fun to read Lansdale, but this is one of his weaker books.
Regardles of that, Phil Gigante does an outstanding job in narrating the story and it is a real pleasure to listen to him. His performance compensates for some of the short comings of the book.
The story itself is not very convincing and contains a lot of implausible details, which make it appear a little bit far fetched and constructed. Hap saves a young girl's life and uses the reward to go on a cruise together with Leonard. As we know, both of them work like a magnet for trouble and disaster and pretty soon they get entangled with a Mexican crime Lord. The situation develops to an Enchilada of abuse, murder and abduction spiced with a little bit of sex and money, but as always, Hap and Leonard put things right and get away with minor bruises and injuries. .
Lansdale has his usual way with words and the language is really bad, but incredible funny. The way he tells the story, makes you easily forget the flaws of the plot. You can't help it, you will have to laugh out loud sometimes and that alone is worth reading the book.
